Jackhammer wire helps crack open fully blocked coronary arteries researchers

first_imgTORONTO – In what’s being touted as a world first, Montreal researchers have been able to bust open coronary arteries completely blocked with calcium deposits using an innovative device that produces a “jackhammer” effect.Doctors at the McGill University Health Centre are testing the SoundBite Active Wire in a small group of patients who have “chronic total occlusion” of one of their coronary arteries, which severely restricts blood flow to the heart.Principal researcher Dr. Stephane Rinfret, chief of interventional cardiology at MUHC, said Wednesday the condition affects about 20 per cent of people with coronary atherosclerosis, often called hardening of the arteries.Interventional cardiologists typically treat arteries with varying degrees of plaque buildup using angioplasty — a procedure in which a fine guide wire and catheter are fed into the blood vessel and a tiny balloon is inflated to widen the opening. A stent is usually inserted to keep the vessel clear and blood flowing freely.But with chronic total occlusion, or CTO, safely breaching a wall of rock-like calcium with a traditional guide wire is a highly complex, time-consuming procedure, which many interventional cardiologists are reluctant to perform because it can have a poor success rate, said Rinfret, who specializes in complex angioplasties.Between 10 and 50 per cent of all CTO angioplasties are unsuccessful, primarily because ordinary wires can’t break through the wall of calcium, he said.The SoundBite guide wire, developed by a Quebec company named SoundBite Medical Solutions, provides a new twist that could help increase success rates.The wire is connected to a shock wave generator, which causes it to vibrate like a jackhammer inside the artery, allowing it to create cracks in the calcium blockage while leaving the walls of the blood vessel unharmed.“This wire could mean the difference between the success and failure of a CTO angioplasty because it will be able to break through areas where other guides fail to penetrate,” said Rinfret. “It will clear the way and allow us to treat the diseased artery.”Animal studies have shown the device doesn’t pulverize the calcium blockage to create debris — which could lead to heart attack-causing clots — but opens up tiny fissures that allow a second guide wire and balloon catheter to pass through.“We’re going to use it as a point-and-shoot,” he said, noting that another version of the guide wire was used for the first time in 2016 to clear blockages in leg arteries.MUHC researchers performed the first CTO angioplasty using the SoundBite wire in June and have since done two more. They plan to do 10 in total as part of a preliminary study, along with another 10 that will be performed by colleagues at Columbia University in New York.That study will be expanded to include 150 patients at several more centres in Canada and the U.S., with the aim of demonstrating that the device is safe and effective.The goal is to have the SoundBite approved for widespread use by regulatory agencies like Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said Rinfret. An estimated 300,000 people in North America could benefit from the technology.“The problem is there are too few patients who have access to chronic total occlusion angioplasty” because relatively few interventional cardiologists feel confident tackling the complicated procedure, he said.“What we need is to make sure pretty much everyone is more comfortable in attempting those vessels … so more patients have access that really changes their life and quality of life.”— Follow @SherylUbelacker on Twitter.last_img read more

Morocco Busts Terrorist Cell Involved in Recruiting Fighters for ISIS

Rabat – Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ), an offshoot of Morocco’s domestic intelligence agency (DGST), dismantled, on Thursday, an eight-member terrorist cell involved in recruiting and sending Moroccan fighters to the ranks of the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS),  the Interior Ministry said.The terrorist cell was operating in the cities of Casablanca, Tangier, Salé, Jorf Al Melha and Kelaat Sraghna, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.The members of the dismantled cell were involved in sending dozens of Moroccan fighters to the Middle East through their agents in Turkey via the Turkish-Syrian borders, the same source said. The arrested individuals showed loyalty to the IS expansionist strategy which aims at attracting Moroccan fighters who will later return to Morocco to perpetrate targeted terrorist attacks undermining security and stability, the statement said.The suspects will be brought before justice upon completion of investigations under the supervision of the general prosecutor, concluded the statement. read more

Ban Kimoon urges countries to enhance sharing of data on small arms

These weapons are “cheap, light and easy to handle, transport and conceal,” Mr. Ban wrote in his first-ever report on the topic.“While a build-up of small arms alone may not create the conflicts in which they are used, their excessive accumulation and universal availability tends to aggravate conflicts by increasing the lethality and duration of violence and by increasing the sense of insecurity which leads to a greater demand for weapons.”The Secretary-General pointed out that currently most conflicts are fought using mainly small arms and light weapons, being widely used in inter-State conflicts as well as in civil wars, terrorism, organized crime and gang warfare.“Small arms facilitate a vast spectrum of human rights violations,” such as rape and other forms of sexual violence, torture and forced recruitment of children by armed groups or forces, he said. “More human rights abuses are committed with them than with any other weapons.The lack of progress in curbing small arms is partially a result of limited data, coordination and capacity, Mr. Ban noted.“Without more transparency on the part of Governments, in particular in the field of trade in small arms and ammunition, it is difficult to assess where gaps exist in the national, regional and global implementation of international instruments,” he said, calling for stepped up research on the issue by States which are in a position to do so.The Secretary-General observed that coordination on the topic of small arms could also be improved within the UN, adding that reviving the Coordination Action on Small Arms (CASA) – established in 198 as a consultative mechanism – is one of this year’s top disarmament priorities.CASA will also begin creating international standards for controlling small arms, similar to the ones created for mine action and for disarmament, demobilization and reintegration.The report recommended that the Security Council promote strengthened cooperation among its sanctions monitoring groups, peacekeeping missions, Member States and others. It also encouraged the Peacebuilding Commission, the Office for Disarmament Affairs and the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict to boost their cooperation on the issue of children and small arms. 23 April 2008Member States need to increase their collection, maintenance and sharing of data on small arms as part of measures to encourage disarmament, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report made public today. read more

UN envoy meets Thai and Cambodian leaders over Preah Vihear heritage site

2 March 2011A special envoy of the United Nations agency tasked with preserving the world’s cultural heritage has concluded meetings with the leaders of Thailand and Cambodia to discuss the safeguarding of Preah Vihear, a Hindu temple inscribed on the World Heritage List that was damaged during border clashes between the two countries last month. A special envoy of the United Nations agency tasked with preserving the world’s cultural heritage has concluded meetings with the leaders of Thailand and Cambodia to discuss the safeguarding of Preah Vihear, a Hindu temple inscribed on the World Heritage List that was damaged during border clashes between the two countries last month.Koïchiro Matsuura, special envoy for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), travelled to Bangkok, the Thai capital, and Phnom Penh, the seat of Cambodia’s Government, from Sunday to Tuesday, at the request of Irina Bokova, the UNESCO Director-General.In Bangkok, Mr. Matsuura met with Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, Foreign Affairs Minister Kasit Piromya, and National Resources and Environment Minister Siwit Khunkitti. He was also received by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, who is a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador.In Phnom Penh, Mr, Matsuura met with Prime Minister Hun Sen and Deputy Prime Minister Sok An, and was also received by King Norodom Sihamoni.In his discussions with the leaders and officials, Mr. Matsuura stressed the need to create conditions necessary for the safeguarding of the 11th century temple.Mr. Matsuura, a former UNESCO Director-General and Chair of the World Heritage Committee from 1998 to 1999, expressed the hope that the two countries will engage in dialogue that will lead to the establishment of long-term conservation arrangements.The temple was inscribed on the World Heritage List for its outstanding universal value, in keeping with the 1972 World Heritage Convention, which has been ratified by both Cambodia and Thailand. read more

Even in war there are rules – UN official urges Security Council

Briefing the 15-member Council for the second time in less than a month, Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, reminded delegates of their “strong demands” regarding the inviolability of Syrian civilians as enshrined in the Council’s resolution 2139 which, she observed, had gone “unheard.”“In many parts of Syria the level of violence has worsened, with civilians continuing to pay heavily with loss of life, serious injuries, psychological trauma, ongoing and recurring displacement and massive damage to property and infrastructure,” Ms. Amos explained.“We have run out of words to fully explain the brutality, violence and callous disregard for human life which is a hallmark of this crisis,” she continued. “The international community has become numb to its impact with the vast numbers, regional reach and sense of political impasse.”Council resolution 2139, from February 2014, demands that all parties, in particular the Syrian authorities, allow humanitarian access in Syria across conflict lines, in besieged areas and across borders. In addition, the resolution sought protection for civilians caught in the midst of the fighting and aimed to ensure that civilian facilities – such as hospitals and schools – remained untouched by the hostilities. Ms. Amos noted, however, that the resolution continued to be violated on all counts. While resolution 2139 called for an end to the indiscriminate use of weapons, Ms. Amos detailed how the Government continued to use barrel bombs; while the resolution demanded that all parties respect the principle of medical neutrality, she reported that hospitals across the country had been attacked and schools bombed from the air; while the Council condemned grave violations and abuses committed against children and women, sexual and gender based violence had increased since July and over 5.6 million children remained in need of immediate assistance. In addition, she said, reports of early and forced marriage were also on the rise. “This conflict is not only shattering Syria’s present,” warned Ms. Amos. “It is also destroying its future.” At the same time, the UN official lamented the constant use of siege warfare as numerous Syrian communities remained cut-off from basic assistance such as food and medicine. The use of siege, she said, had also become a cruel tactic, particularly when small amounts of aid were allowed into a beleaguered area “giving people hope, but so little it can only help a fraction of those in need.”“People’s hopes raised and then dashed,” she said. “Time and time again.”At the passing of resolution 2139 in February, there were 220,000 people besieged by either Government or opposition forces; of those, 212,000 remain besieged today – 185,000 people by Government forces and 26,500 people by opposition forces. Ms. Amos appealed to the international community to find a political end to the civil war “once and for all” and urged the Council to ramp up its efforts in ensuring that all parties involved in the Syrian conflict heed the body’s call and “comply with resolution 2139 in its entirety” because, as she explained, “even in war there are rules.” read more

Finally Healthy David Garrard Eyes The Jets

David Garrard, once an upstart quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars, worked out for the New York Jets last week and left feeling like that was the place for him.No longer hampered by a knee injury, Garrard said on XM Radio that he aced his audition and feels the Jets are an ideal place for him to restart his career. Never mind that Mark Sanchez is still on the roster.Garrard, 35, met with Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, and he even encountered Sanchez.“It was a great workout,” Garrard said. “Every drill they had me do, I did great in. I felt like my old self again. They loved what they saw.”Because “they have a lot of issues with the (salary) cap,” Garrard said, the team did not offer him a contract. Yet.“They really couldn’t do anything at that time,” he said. “That’s kind of unfortunate because I don’t want to have to sit here without a job.”A source close to the situation told ESPN last week that the quarterback “anticipates putting a deal together” with the Jets once those cap issues are resolved. A source told ESPNNewYork on Sunday that the team has kept open the lines of communication with Garrard, but no deal is imminent.Garrard, from New Jersey, has not played in a regular season game since 2010.  He spent last offseason with the Miami Dolphins, but was sidelined by a knee injury and was not signed by any other team.“I don’t have anything to prove to myself. I know I can play,” he said. “I’m not ready to be done yet when I can get out there and move around. It’s unfortunate these last two years I’ve had these injuries that really weren’t football injuries, because I didn’t get hit and get hurt.”Garrard has thrown for 16,003 yards with 89 touchdowns and 54 interceptions in 86 career games, mostly with the Jaguars.“I’m not ready to be done yet,” he said, adding, “I’m tired of sitting and watching on my couch.“I want to go out and win ballgames. I’ve been watching for the last few years unfortunately and I’ve been watching some not-so-good quarterback play out there and I know that I can still play and I can play at a high level,” he said. “I want to get back out on the field and show myself that I can stay healthy and help a ballclub, really.” read more

Cauliflower off the menu after hot July kills crop

“You’d have to rethink the whole dish of cauliflower cheese, broccoli is having issues too.”Courgettes and squashes are in abundance at the moment. A lot of my restaurants are changing their menus.”Head Chef Tom Brown from the restaurant Gauthier in Soho said that the supplier they use has put prices up by 50 per cent.He added: “We were going to put our usual tri-color cauliflower dish for autumn but we’ve decided not to because of price increases.”Other members of the brassica family are also in short supply, including broccoli, and it is feared that the Brussels sprouts plants may suffer before the Christmas harvest.Mr Mascarenhas added: “What we don’t know going forward is what will happen with things like Brussels sprouts for Christmas as the plants are still too young so we haven’t seen how the heat will affect them.” Those hunting for a bubbling dish of cauliflower cheese in a restaurant will be in for disappointment after the crop was killed off by the freak July weather, causing a shortage.Britain is usually self-sufficient for cauliflower, which has become fashionable in recent years, roasted whole as a plant-based Sunday dinner and whizzed up as an alternative to rice.As the country baked in temperatures, which hit a record 38.7 degrees, brassica plants were killed off. This means wholesale prices have been hiked from 60p-£3 in some cases, and restaurants have taken cauliflower off their menus entirely.Vernon Mascarenhas, a vegetable wholesaler from Nature’s Choice at New Covent Garden Market said: “Right now we have none.”Mr Mascarenhas,  who supplies many of London’s leading restaurants and hotels, including The Ledbury and Le Gavroche, added: “Cauliflowers suffered because of the freak weather we had a few weeks ago, the incredible heat, that basically just killed all the crops coming through.”The wholesale price of cauliflower was 60p, it’s now £3. We have none. That’s the wholesale price – it’s not even reached the shops yet.”There will be none in regular greengrocers, supermarkets are stocking tiny weeny ones.”Mr Mascarenhas said the vegetable is not featured on menus at the moment, explaining: “Most of my clients I have spoken to have taken them off. The trendy dish of cauliflower couscous is on hold at the moment, they are using other vegetables. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Port of Vancouvers budget 16M less than this years

first_imgThe Port of Vancouver will head into 2013 with a slimmed-down spending plan but with expectations it will rope in more revenue to plow into infrastructure projects and jobs, thanks to a decision by its Board of Commissioners on Tuesday.The port’s elected three-member Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a 2013 budget of $64.01 million, down roughly 20 percent, or about $16 million, from this year’s projected budget of $80.18 million. The board approved the budget without taking advantage of the port’s allowable 1 percent increase in its property tax levy.The $16 million reduction comes entirely from the port’s capital projects plan, which is focused on building out its West Vancouver Freight Access project. The freight rail project aims to bolster the regional economy by generating thousands of jobs over several years.The capital spending cut will delay only certain pieces of the long-planned $275 million freight rail project, which remains well under construction, on time and on budget, according to port officials.The decision to put off some of the freight rail project reflects the port’s cautious approach to next year’s budget as it anticipates either flat or reduced revenue from a variety of sources, including grants and property taxes, and shipping and cargo-handling fees.last_img read more

Sheriff Gonzalez Releases Sketch Of Man Who Killed Jazmine Barnes And Video

first_img Share Harris County Sheriff’s OfficeSketch of the man believed to have killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in the Houston area on December 30, 2018.Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez released Thursday a sketch of the man who fatally shot 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes on December 30 and video of the red or maroon pick-up truck he drove.The fatal shooting occurred around 6:50 a.m. on the south bound of E. Sam Houston Parkway frontage road, just south of Wallisville Road.The sketch was created based on a description provided by members of Barnes’ family.The suspected shooter is described as a thinly built white man, possibly in his 30’s or 40’s, who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt at the time of the shooting.Initially, the man was described to have a beard, but the sketch shows what Gonzalez called a “five o’clock shadow.” He added it’s possible that by now the man has shaved or grown a mustache.The Sheriff also underlined the suspect has been described as a white man, but it’s also possible he is a “light skinned” Hispanic male.Gonzalez said the video shows a location that’s “in very close proximity” to where the shooting took place. He also noted one of the challenges is that the video is dark because it was recorded early in the morning.Dallas-based civil rights attorney Lee Merritt was at the media availability Gonzalez held to release the sketch and the video. He said Barnes’ family believes the shooter is “a very thin person” with “pale skin” and “blue eyes.”He added he thinks the shooting was racially motivated “in part because our nation at this moment is a highly racially charged society” and referenced FBI data that indicate there has been an increase in hate crimes in the United States.The Sheriff’s Office has established a command post in the area where the shooting took place, in the east section of Harris County. Gonzalez said the purpose of the command post is to “coordinate operations out there, more directly out in the field” and noted that additional patrols have been deployed in the area.Before Gonzalez held his media availability, LaPorsha Washington, Barnes’ mother, made a public statement saying she’s overwhelmed by the support from the local community and across the country.Washington, who was wounded in the shooting, said is hopeful that a rally planned for this weekend could result in new tips and called on the shooter to turn himself in because she knows he’s hurting over what he did and the only way he can find peace is by doing “the right thing.”The FBI and the ATF, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Houston Police Department, are assisting the Sheriff’s Office in the investigation. Additionally, NASA helped enhance the video released Thursday.Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS, or the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000.You can watch the video of the truck believed to be driven by the shooter here:Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/03162620/Video-Jan-03-3-52-33-PM.mp400:0000:0000:06Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more

All of these patients were diagnosed with at least one vertebral fracture and had undergone a complementary MRI. The MRI images were evaluated in order to detect vertebrae with traumatic BME.Two readers, who were blinded to the results of MRI, evaluated CaSupp for vertebral BME and determined the optimal calcium suppression indices for visualization of BME. In addition, bone mineral density was assessed based on ROI measurements. Moreover, one reader measured the attenuation and standard deviation of BME in fractured and normal vertebrae previously determined in MRI using ROIs in the CaSupp images. The measurements were conducted at different CaSupp indices, ranging from 30 to 100 with an increment of 10 in order to calculate contrast-to-noise ratios.For the results of the detection of BME, specificity, sensitivity, positive and negative predictive value, and accuracy were calculated. Statistical tests were performed for interrater agreement and contrast-to-noise (CNR) analysis.

Medical imaging plays an increasing role in the accurate… read more Related Content OverviewVertebral fractures are common and require individual treatment, as they are associated with considerable morbidity, mortality and future fractures. Therefore, a precise diagnostic workup of vertebral fractures is crucial for adequate clinical management.In clinical routine, X-ray and CT of the spine are performed as the initial assessment of VF. However, the dense trabecular bone can obscure the visualization of post-traumatic bone marrow changes, making MRI the modality of choice to differentiate acute and chronic VF based on the presence or absence of BME. But one of the limitations of using an MRI for this assessment is an MRI’s limitation in helping the clinician adequately visualize trabecular and cortical bone structures. This means that assessing both high contrast (trabecular bone) and low contrast tissues (bone marrow) in one examination can be a challenge.To address this issue, IQon Elite Spectral CT introduced a CaSupp image to its list of spectral results available for every patient scanned on an IQon Elite. With these images, voxels containing calcium are suppressed and replaced by virtual HU values, as similar as possible to the expected HU, without the calcium contribution to the attenuation. The extent of calcium suppression can be modified using different calcium suppression indices. Bone marrow changes, normally obscured by the dense trabecular bone, may be visualized and therefore allow for the detection of traumatic BME.

ConclusionCaSupp images reconstructed from IQon Elite Spectral CT allowed the clinician to better visualize and identify BME in traumatic fractured vertebrae with a high diagnostic accuracy using CaSupp indices of 70-100.The high negative predictive value emphasizes the potential of CaSupp to rule out BME due to acute or subacute fracture. Additionally, CaSupp has shown the potential to assist the clinician in the detection of occult fractures since BME in vertebrae without morphologic signs of fracture in conventional CT were also detected.

MRI revealed BME in 57 out of 383 vertebrae (14.9 percent). Of the 57 vertebrae showing BME in MRI, both readers detected 51 and 48 true positive vertebrae with BME in CaSupp, respectively. In contrast to that, two and three false positive findings of BME were reported by Reader one and Reader two (see Table 1).Overall, CaSupp yielded an average sensitivity of 87 percent and specificity of 99 percent, a positive predictive value of 95 percent, a negative predictive value of 98 percent and an accuracy of 97 percent for the detection of fracture-associated edema.Edema adjacent to the cortical endplates was better visualized using CaSupp index of 70 and 80, while extensive edema (BME extending throughout the trabecular bone compartment) was better visualized using a CaSupp index of 90 and 100 (chi2<0.0001).No correlation between optimal CaSupp-index and trabecular density was found (p>0.2). CNR of BME increased with higher CaSupp index, with the peak value observed at the highest CaSupp-Index of 100.

Rosen will try to show his worth as the preseason continues. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Why is he not considered No. 1?According to Pro Football Focus:“The question for Rosen is why he never put together a dominant season at UCLA despite having first-round tools and he must improve his decision-making after ranking 25th out of 38 draft-class quarterbacks in avoiding turnover-worthy plays.”The two ahead of him, Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold, put together masterful seasons at Oklahoma and USC, respectively.All three quarterbacks debuted in the first week of preseason.Mayfield came off the bench and went 11-for-20 with 212 yards and two touchdowns for the Cleveland Browns.How did the No. 1 overall pick look in his preseason debut?EVERY @bakermayfield throw from #CLEvsNYG! pic.twitter.com/QLJQezjNT7— NFL (@NFL) August 10, 2018He missed some throws, but a couple plays that highlight his potential:Mayfield showed good footwork around the 0:30 mark. Then, at the 1:00 mark, he went through his progressions well and got the ball between two defenders for a touchdown. Finally, around the 2:30 mark, he threw a dime while running from defenders for a 24-yard gain.Pro Football Focus wrote that Mayfield, who was ranked No. 1, “owns the best two single-season grades we have ever given to a college quarterback, and was elite in almost any situation.” Top Stories Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen (3) is pulled down by Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Isaac Rochell (98) after the throw during the first half of a preseason NFL football game, Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Arizona Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen has a chip on his shoulder after nine teams passed on him in the 2018 NFL Draft.He expressed that those teams made “mistakes” in doing so.Prior to the first preseason game, Pro Football Focus may have given the 21-year-old another chip on his shoulder — it ranked Rosen third among rookie quarterbacks.Related LinksCards QB Josh Rosen didn’t light up the stat sheet, but he showed promiseCardinals’ Rosen on criticism of asking ‘why?’: ‘Dumbest thing I’ve ever heard’In college, the UCLA product threw for 9,340 total career yards and 59 touchdowns. He has the size, intangibles and potential. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Darnold, ranked No. 2, completed the highest rate of passes of the three by going 13-of-18 for the New York Jets. He had 96 yards passing and a touchdown.The No. 3 overall pick looked sharp in his preseason debut.EVERY Sam Darnold throw + touch from #ATLvsNYJ! pic.twitter.com/XyjpIvtNzE— NFL (@NFL) August 11, 2018Watch at the 0:15 mark as he’s about to get sacked but finds a man short for a first down.And while Darnold often got rid of the ball quickly, he showed good mobility in the pocket and waited until his man was open around the 1:25 mark. His touchdown pass, at 1:50, also was a product of his footwork, as he escaped the pocket and allowed his receiver to catch the throw just before stepping out of bounds.“Darnold has the NFL throws in his bag … but he “must cut back on the poor decisions and ugly fumbles that marred his redshirt-sophomore season,” Pro Football Focus wrote.Rosen was the only one of the three who didn’t lead his team to a touchdown. He had a pedestrian stat line of 6-for-13 with 41 yards.With that said, Rosen didn’t get much help from teammates. He was hit on his first pass, had to scoop low snaps all half and his receivers couldn’t catch the ball with pressure on their backs.last_img read more
